The neuroscience of asking insightful questions | Linking Literacy & Learning: Research, Reflection, and Practice | Scoop.it
I teach coaching skills to leaders. When I get to the section on how to ask questions (an important part of learning to coach) I might ask a trick question to start off: “How many of you are good at solving problems?”. Without fail, almost all hands shoot enthusiastically into the air. There’s nothing wrong …

We are not guiding if we are solving for the kids. We need to guide kids to their own solutions to the challenges that they face. Asking questions rather than giving answers tests our patience and our desire to "help," but we do not help if we simply give answers.

The Glossary of Education Reform -

The Glossary of Education Reform - | Linking Literacy & Learning: Research, Reflection, and Practice | Scoop.it

Description by The Scout Report

 

"What is a norm-referenced test? What does it mean for a student to be "college-ready"? What does project-based learning entail? Designed for "journalists, parents, and community members," the Glossary of Education Reform is intended to make jargon and terminology used in educational policy circles accessible to anyone. While vocabulary related to educational reform is often linked to particular policy implementations and ideologies, the team behind the Glossary of Education Reform strives to be as objective as possible. The Glossary was created by the Great Schools Partnership, a Portland, Maine based non-profit organization that works "to redesign public education and improve learning for all students." This resource is authored and edited by a team of educational policy analysts, journalists, and scholars. Users can search for terms or browse terms alphabetically."

How early do girls decide math isn't for them? | Linking Literacy & Learning: Research, Reflection, and Practice | Scoop.it
Like most Americans, Andrew Meltzoff, co-director of the University of Washington Institute for Learning & Brain Sciences, had heard that girls can't do math. Research shows that in the U.S., both adults and older children believe that math is a male activity.

But Meltzoff wanted to know how early children "catch" stereotypes like this, and when they learn social biases, more generally. He found that stereotypes are ingrained by second grade – before children even learn their multiplication tables.

In this survey conduct every year you can find a recompilation of all the problems which education is facing in a general context. As teachers we need to be cautions of the problems the education system is facing and look for ways to fix or overcome this problems. Take a look at the survey results and try to identify which problems the Colombian educational context is facing. As you can see we are pretty much facing most of them and now is time to solve the problems one by one!

Deeper Learning—for Teachers

Deeper Learning—for Teachers | Linking Literacy & Learning: Research, Reflection, and Practice | Scoop.it
Professional development. The phrase has a lot of connotations: Some may think of a trainer talking at them for a full day while others remember a fantastic and practical workshop or a meaningful conversation with a student or colleague. I see a clear parallel to the term project. Say “project” to someone, and they might recall a truly valuable experience or perhaps a complete waste of time. However, we know that when we adopt the mindset and essentials of project-based learning with students, we can improve upon existing projects or create new and better ones. Can we use PBL to improve professional development?

Los profesionales involucrados en la educación del siglo XXI tienen otras habilidades mucho más complejas y diversas que los actuales. Pensar en el educador como el único que debe asumir la responsabilidad de gestionar experiencias de aprendizaje en sus estudiantes es cosa del pasado. Ahora se trata de constituir un equipo de especialistas en diversos campos que colaboren entre sí desde la comprensión de lo que requiere precisamente la sociedad y el mercado en términos educativos y de capacitación, hasta el uso más adecuado de las diversas herramientas tecnológicas que están hoy en día a disposición.

How to Help Teachers Get Better Together

How to Help Teachers Get Better Together | Linking Literacy & Learning: Research, Reflection, and Practice | Scoop.it

"School districts in the U.S. spend $18 billion on teacher training each year. Most often, in terms of the total hours spent, the format for that training is collaborative professional development, a form of training in which teachers work together in groups to improve their teaching. These groups are often called professional learning communities (PLCs). Two-thirds of U.S. teachers now report spending time in PLCs.

"So far, the results of such collaboration have been poor. The intentions are good, but the implementation is not: teachers are even less satisfied with collaborative professional development than with the “sit and get” workshops that collaboration was intended to replace, according to a survey conducted by The Boston Consulting Group in collaboration with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. Many teachers we surveyed found programs poorly structured and the experience boring and disconnected from their day-to-day jobs. Half as many teachers were highly satisfied with their collaborative-professional-development experience (11 percent) as were highly satisfied with workshops (22 percent), traditionally the least interactive form of teacher training.

 

"Districts must begin to close the gap between the engaging, relevant, and hands-on training that teachers and administrators say they want and the reality of disengagement with collaborative training on the ground. The benefits: teachers who have positive collaborative-professional-development experiences say that they work smarter and that their jobs are more sustainable, and they feel that they are better able to address the many challenges they face in implementing Common Core standards, differentiating instruction to meet student needs, and more efficiently using data and technology. They are more engaged, and studies show that a feeling of engagement helps good, difficult-to-replace teachers stay in the profession. Ultimately, the evidence suggests that better implementation of collaborative training could add up to better outcomes for students."

The challenge with "teacher training" is that it is ordered by those furthest from classrooms. Give teachers a voice. What is important to them and their students? Treat them as professionals and it will not be a free-for-all. Treat it like education not training.

7 Tips for Planning a Makerspace -- THE Journal

7 Tips for Planning a Makerspace -- THE Journal | Linking Literacy & Learning: Research, Reflection, and Practice | Scoop.it
An increasing number of K-12 schools are transforming classrooms, libraries or other spaces into Informal workshop environments where students can tinker or invent, and with good reason. According to The NMC/CoSN Horizon Report: 2016 K-12 Edition, "Makerspaces are also increasing student exposure to STEM subjects and technical disciplines. Learners are applying maker skills to address some of the world's pressing challenges with innovative solutions."

But how do makerspaces get started? THE Journal spoke with several experts, who shared their insights into the makerspace planning phase — not just designing or equipping the space itself but preparing the students and staff so that they're able to make the best possible use of it.
